Summary

Summary

Ezra Pound is the central figure in the development of modern English poetry, yet his poetry is often regarded as too difficult for many. This classic study provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to Pound's work. Michael Alexander--himself a poet and translator--brings out the life and originality of Pound's poetry and shows how he contributed to the modernist movement through his own writing as well as through his impact on Yeats, Eliot, Joyce, and others.
